Newbie Question: ER Lite using Asus RT-AC68 as WAP and seperate DHCP networks

[ Edited ]

Hi there,

 

I'm new to the Ubiquiti product line.

I've setup my ER lite using Load Balancing between eth0 and eth1, where eth1 selected as only use this interface if the other fails.

 

Everything that i need works fine except one thing.

I had an RT-AC68 router which i'd like to use as my WAP.

I set its lan to 192.168.10.5

 

My ER lite eth2 is 192.168.0.1/24

I created a vlan id2 as 192.168.10.1/24

Also created 2nd dhcp as 192.168.10.0/24

 

The WAP is plugged into a switch and on the WAP its connected via port 1 out of the 4 ethernet ports available. Not on WAN port.

 

I am trying to force any WiFi clients to use the vlan2 dhcp of 192.168.10.0/24 but keep getting an ip on my wifi client as 192.168.0.112.

 

What am I doing wrong? I'd like to ensure there is no access between the two subnets i.e. 192.168.0.x and 192.168.10.x

 

Ideally, i'd like to resolve this via a GUI as im not a CLI expert.

 

TIA!

I assume the VLAN is set on eth2? So there is a eth2.2 port available?
Next: the switch needs to forward the vlan - what switch do you use?

Easiest way to test if you can access the vlan: plug a computer into the ethernet port where the WAP is connected. Set the VLAN tag for the ethernet card of your computer to "2". Correct IP-range or not? If not, the port you connected the computer to is not aware of a vlan. Additional configuration is needed in this case.

Last time I checked, Asus routers did not support VLAN's on the Guest network, that's why you are not getting an address in the network you want. You may be able to run some 3rd party fw to get around the Asus VLAN issue. I would check here for clarification on the Asus firmware / set up. As an alternative purchase a Ubiquiti AP.

If that is the case, the OP can solve the problem by using a switch that offers vlan tagging for a port. Every device connected to that (vlan2) tagged port will be part of the vlan.
